Social Media For Authors, part 2


Last week, I talked a little about social media (HERE), and in the comments/replies, I mentioned how I drive crazy amounts of traffic to my blog using my secret method on Twitter. It’s not re…

Deeper Colors is about an artist (2 artists actually) Fictional characters. But here is the real thing.


Deeper Colors is about an artist (2 artists actually)  Fictional characters.  But here is the real thing.  In my book, Gina is seeking how to capture the light she sees in an 18th century artist’s paintings she ran across one day in Paris.  She finally discovers secrets (both artistic and personal) and deepens the colors not only of her paintings but in herself too.

This artist is my artist.  So many of her paintings are what I envisioned for scenes in the book. She even has a cat.  It’s almost uncanny.  Go look and enjoy.

A friend bought the (original) painting a few years ago for an anniversary/valentine gift because this was where he and his wife married.  Was a nice thought and I was glad that I had created something that was meaningful to someone else.

Can I hitch a ride to Périgueux – France?


Life as a Writer and Artist

People say how can I possibly write about a place I have never visited.(Even though it is a novel – fiction.)  What with the Internet research, Google maps, travel blogs, etc.,  I think I have done a pretty good job, but people keep complaining. So I guess I need to go to Périgueux (That’s in the Dordogne region of France).  Unfortunately I can’t afford it, not even the air tickets, much less the room and food and transportation, etc. for the weeks I am told I should stay there to get the real flavor of the place.

They say there are just six degrees of separation between us and everyone else in the world. So my questions is- does anyone know anyone, who knows anyone, who knows anyone, who knows anyone, who knows anyone — is that six? — who lives there and can be my vicarious sensory describer or…

Begin the journey here.

The ‘capital’ of the Dordogne department is set towards the north of the region. Many miles from the Dordogne River, it is actually found on the Isle River.

The town has been in existence since neolithic times, and later became an important Roman centre. The town suffered a great deal in the Middle Ages through the Hundred Years War and other conflicts in the region, then had a ‘rebirth’ – and much construction in the town dates from this time – in the 16th century. From the 18th century onwards, Perigueux continues to be an important centre for the region.
